    Are 2011 and 2012 wheels identical with only difference being color? If so, I presume hub cap from 2012 wheels will fit 2011 wheels?

    Thanks,

    It should, but I don't think it'll look good unless you black out the alloys with plastiquik or something.

    Yes they are exactly same except that in 2012 Prius they are painted black. Someone was trying to sell wheel 2012wheel covers and also posted a pic of how they would look on 2010-11 Prius alloy wheel in the private sales section. Take a look. IMO they don't look bad at all.
